    A few summers ago, my s/o and I rode our bikes from Pocomoke City, MD (where we were staying at a B&B) to Crisfield, MD and then went over on the mail boat to Smith Island. Rode around the island,...

    Never mind, LOL! :)

    I don't believe that the police/transit authorities nowadays still provide the walk-up van service that suburbanbeat describes (actually, I'm surprised that they were, apparently, still doing so in...

    After semi-pondering it for several years, I'm fairly certain that 2016 is when I will actually do the GAP/C&O trip. Maybe 5-6 days, tent camping. Still hemming and hawing about the most basic...

    It *is* an interesting topic, and it's a shame how the Touring thread derailed the way it did. But, boy, talk about a niche within a niche within a niche! Cyclists are already a minority of the...

    It's all a tradeoff. "Need" is subjective. "Harder to control" does not equal "so hard to control that it's dangerous or at least very unpleasant and should be avoided." Thus people will balance...

    That is exactly the point that (I believe) many here are trying to make. Yes, a fully-loaded touring bike handles differently than an unloaded touring bike, or a race bike. That difference does not...

    I don't think JulieL said that she was particularly short.

    Because there is less concern for speed and aerodynamics, it does seem that there is indeed a lot more leeway in setting up a touring...

    Hmmm. $25. On top of the price of your train ticket.

    Anybody know what those bike-and-rider shuttle services along the trail charge?

    There are biting flies (painful!!) on Assateague; it seems kind of hit or miss as to whether they will be bad on any given outing. I used to do an annual three-day camping trip in the group site...

    There are showers for use by day-trippers to the beach on Assateague. Note that there are actually two parks on Assateague -- Assateague State Park, and Assateague National Seashore. The national...

    Yeeeeaaaah, I'm thinking we would *not* be a very good tandem team -- we're both a little too fond of doing our own things. ;) We tend to yo-yo on our rides: he may decide to go haring off up ahead...
